C-Zero is a hard tech startup co-located in Santa Barbara and San Francisco. Our team combines Silicon Valley innovation with decades of experience in building some of the world's largest chemical plants.

The Problem

Natural gas is cheap and abundant, but today, utilizing it for energy generates carbon dioxide.

The Solution

Our technology removes the carbon from natural gas so that energy consumers can enjoy zero-emission, low-cost energy on demand.

Our proprietary technology uses high temperature catalytic melt systems to break down methane, the primary molecule in natural gas, into hydrogen and solid carbon. 


C-Zero’s zero-emission hydrogen can be used to decarbonize a wide range of industries including ammonia production, gasoline and diesel fuel, electrical generation, process heat, and fuel cell vehicles.
